The only requirement by any devices out there to be CEC compliant is that it must respond to the 'power off' command. HDMI CEC is a joke, and is why there are good universal remotes out there. HDMI CEC had the potential to be exceptional, but it wasn't implemented well and manufacturers don't tend to publish specs, compatibility, or much else. In fact, due to the erratic nature of HDMI CEC, it is typically far better to simply not use it than to allow it to fail to deliver as expected with inconsistent results.
Need to get that Blu-ray out of your player? Well, turning on the BD player just turned on the receiver and the projector automatically... Great. What a waste.
